    In what is perhaps the inevitable next step for the marketing juggernaut that is Angry Birds, Rovio has teamed up with George Lucas for the next installment in the Birds-Kill-Pigs franchise.

    Angry Birds Star Wars, the company announced today, will be released on November 8th for iOS and Mac, as well as a host of other platforms.

    Rovio is going all out with the marketing tie-in, launching a Tumblr page with fan art, wallpapers, and more.

    Excellent timing! I could probably use some cheering up after the elections.

    I wonder if this one will actually be compatible with the iPhone 5's 4 inch screen.

    Two over-milked franchises for the price of one!

    Very true. Over the years I've gotten to the point where I don't automatically buy every new Star Wars thingy that comes out just because it's Star Wars and over the months I've stopped buying new Angry Birds games. But bring the two together and I'm all in!

    Not cutting edge, New York hipsters like you.

    Thank you for checking in anyway to let us know that. But hey! There's a link to your software in your signature for us to click on and you were subtle enough that people may not even consider this spamming. Well played!

    The real Lucas died years ago...... he's strictly animatronic these days. ;)

    Absolutely not true! They did away with animatronics years ago. George is strictly CGI now. :)

    My 5yr old boy loves Angry Birds and is a big fan of Star Wars stuff.

    When he saw this I think he fell off his chair! I pity the school teachers, they will hear nothing else from now until Nov 8th.

    I think i'll give this a miss, but seeing as they're doing movie tie-ins, i'm waiting for this:

    I agree, I lost interest after the first one. Space was "fun" for almost a minute.

    Could be an Angry Birds - Wiggles joint venture?
    They are already colour co-ordinated.

    An Apple/Googe/Samsung version. :D
    Pigs holding a SG3 or Note get hit by an :apple:
    Or vice-versa for "the other" platform (which wouldn't be approved by :apple:)
